[access-uk] Re: Asda online.

Hi Leonie,

I use all the supermarkets and I find Asda extremely easy to use.  Once you 
have made your first order you can save your items in a list, similar to 
favourites on Tesco.  I agree with you about the sizes of products though, 
they do not seem to sell large items of poultry and other meats.

I use Window-Eyes by the way.

Regards

Mary
